Hi doctor, If a person has bruxism, does that mean that he will lose his teeth before the age of 60? A friend of mine has bruxism and is worried about it.
Nothing to worry about Somu. Bruxism is a condition in which the grind, gnash or clench the teeth. If you have bruxism, you may unconsciously clench your teeth when you are awake or clench or grind them during sleep. The exact cause of Bruxism is not known, but it may be due to a combination of physical, psychological and genetic factors. Mild bruxism may not require treatment. However, in some people, bruxism can be frequent and severe enough to lead to jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth etc. The complications include that the teeth are flattened, fractured, chipped or loose, damage from chewing on the inside of the cheek etc. There is limited evidence that suggests taking certain combinations of dietary supplements may alleviate bruxism. Patient needs regular dental care. Homoeopathy is one of the best options for Bruxism. The Homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution, family history, presenting symptoms, underlying pathology, possible causative factors etc. Please call on +918885920000 for more details about medicines and online consultation. “A Healthy outside starts from the inside”.
